As a quick review I lost 10 pounds after rejoining Weight Watchers and doing Smart Points. It is a great plan then I got sick and it turned out it was bronchitis and everything went downhill! I gained seven pounds in a week! A freaking week! Now I did eat all kinds of "bad" foods so I'm not saying I don't know howwwwww I gained it... I'm just being unreasonable and being annoyed by it lol so indulge me for a venting minute... It took like two months to lose it and poof like that it came back!!!!! In Thailand I gained an additional three. So I am back to where I was when I rejoined WW. *SIGH*
Now for my "Beyond the Scale" moments:
On the upside I came back and went right to the grocery store and bought lots of meats, veggies and fruits! I cooked and packed lunch all week and I must say I was proud of myself for doing that.
I have not made it to a WW meeting in a minute because I've had a lot of things to do on Saturday so I am making that a point to go back this Saturday morning.
Another beyond the scale moment I started the FREE 21-Day Meditation Experience, Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit. with Oprah and Deepak Chopra! I started this morning bright and early and it was a great mediation. Years ago that was how I started my early days at the office and it made a difference so I am glad this popped up in my email box while I was away and made a promise to commit to this! I will be honest I have not meditated in a longgggggg time so my mind was all over the place! I know it will get better though. I used the centering thought for today which was is:
My struggle has ended. I am in harmony with myself.
I reposted an old blog post from 2010 and I said I really need to get the 2010 Cylia back! I was SOOOOOO focused! Soooo focused. I do feel like I did not have a lot of balance at that time I would skip parties, happy hours, etc because I didn't trust myself to exercise good judgement. That wasn't healthy but I was so focused on that goal I got results b y any means necessary so I am trying to incorporate some of those good habits like blogging, journaling, exercising regularly, and mediating back into this journey!
Similar to other goals I am working on... I used to feed myself good stories, positive affirmations, and vision boards with my weight loss and health and fitness goals since my focus has shifted to other goals I have slacked up on that. So I am going to restart that good Law of Attraction work. So in addition to the 21 Day mediation I am listening to the Oprah call on the Weight Watchers website as I am typing this. Oprah is talking to Weight Watcher Success Stories and its a good way to feed my mind on this goal. Oprah just said its a big spiritual journey its not just about taking off the pounds. I agree with that. The best thing I can hold on to is I've done this before and unlike a newbie trying to figure it out what's best I already have the winning formula its just about following though.
Well that's all for now! Below here are a few pictures from my awesome trip with my sister!
